    At a remote ice station in Antarctica, a team of US scientists has made an amazing discovery. They have found something buried deep within a 100-million-year-old layer of ice. Something made of metal. Led by enigmatic Lieutenant Shane Schofield, a team of crack United States Marines is sent to the station to secure this discovery for their country.

    McGyver strikes again

    I probably won't try another book from this author. The hero is more of a McGyver type rather than a credible character, & there were too many common ..Show More »

    It is the greatest bounty hunt in history. Fifteen names. There are 15 targets, the finest warriors in the world - commandos, spies, terrorists. And they must all be dead by 12 noon, today. The price on their heads: almost $20 million each.

    Good but could be better

    Well written, fast paced an enjoyable read, but... My only complaint is the incredible escapes that the Scarecrow has from danger. Once in a novel is ..Show More »

    Hell Island does not appear on any maps. It is a secret place where classified experiments have been carried out. Experiments that have gone terribly wrong. When all contact with the island is inexplicably lost, four crack Special Forces units are dropped in. Their mission is to land on Hell Island and discover what has happened. Nothing can prepare them for what they find there. You could say they've just entered Hell. Only that would be wrong. This is much, much worse.

    Great story but priced wrong

    Another great story for Matthew and a "MUST READ" for fans of the Scarecrow story line but this story was written for a story was written as a short s..Show More »

    An old Soviet weapons installation in the Arctic has fallen into disrepair. Known as Dragon Island, the facility is home to a next-generation weapon with the potential to unleash a destructive force upon the world that was developed during the Cold War and subsequently forgotten. When a terrorist organisation known as the Army of Thieves takes control of the fortified island and activates the weapon, a small band of Marines and civilians is sent in to stop them.

    Scarecrow equal to his best

    Non stop action and suspense as in Reilly's other novels..As usual Sean Mangan seems to excel with these action thrillers.

    The tradition continue ! Cannot put the book down (or in this case the headphone down).
